I just bought a 7904427 electric kenmore cooktop, which isnt installed flashed to the countertop, there is 2 mm gap between countertop and cooktop, cooktop sits on the 8 brackets instead of the flat...

From my experience, most cooktop manufacturers give cutout dimensions that almost always need modifications to get the screws or nuts on the stove to fit the cutout. Have your granite fabricator come enlarge the opening by grinding specifically where there is interference. They should be able to tent off your granite and use a vacuum to minimize dust.

Unit on light stays on when unit is off

You need to check the switches. If no problems with the switches it is in the circuit for the indicator light. This is easy to check and the parts are inexpensive. There is a video at that will walk you thru performing these checks.

Cooktop light stays on when cool

the "hot top" indicator lamp is switched by a contact on the plate cut-out. sometimes this cut-out is available as a separate part but often must fit complete plate. by plate i mean the bit that gets hot!
